About the property

One House to Ocean - 1 Loft Bedroom, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 2

Best-At-The-Beach – California Dreamin’ – One House to Ocean

Located at the quiet end of the Golden Peninsula, (but close to all the activity), with its separate and private entrance on a beautiful tree-lined walk street, with open views to the golden sand beach, you simply cannot find a better location to spend your well-deserved vacation. Swim, sunbathe, take long beach walks at sunset, bike rides, boogie board, bodysurf, kayak, fish - your choice - it’s all right here. Or just relax on the serene deck while absorbing the beauty surrounding this romantic, enchanting get-away for two.

This 2-story 1 bedroom Loft home was designed for light and for having an outdoor feeling. The entire front side is glassed. The unit includes hard wood floors, an electric fireplace, and contemporary living space.

With its art deco flair and light flooding into every room, this vacation rental is fully stocked with everything one could want or need. For those who wish to dine elegantly at home, the gourmet kitchen is equipped with all new stainless steel appliances and also includes spices, cooking oils, and a pantry of condiments. Use the gas BBQ for that “at-the-beach/on-vacation” ambience. All you need to do is supply your favorite fresh foods and drinks. A fireplace adds to the romantic touch.

A 5-minute drive brings you to shopping in Marina Del Rey and Venice Beach. Santa Monica is next door. Visit the nearby farmers markets or enjoy eating Italian, Mexican, Thai, seafood, pizza or local dishes in quaint Marina Del Rey, Venice Beach and Santa Monica.

If you wish to keep in touch with the world outside, we provide wireless and wired high-speed broadband Internet (printer connection is USB only) and a 46” flat screen TV. For your recreation pleasure, there are 2 bikes, 2 boogie boards, and beach towels.

About Noi or Jamie

We have lived in this area for a long time & know the area.

Noi or Jamie purchased this condo in 2000

Why Noi or Jamie chose Los Angeles

The location is very close to the Airport. Yet it is along the ocean, at the very quiet end of the Marina Peninsula, on a serene walk street on a corner lot. The building is open, light & airy.

Bicycle on the Sand to Venice Beach Boardwalk, Farmer Markets, restaurants, etc... Boogieboard, swim, walk & relax on the serene part of the Beach. Two bicycles are provided with the rental. Two reserved parking spaces come with Best-at-the-Beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so pleased to have chosen Best at the Beach. It was recommended by good friends from Playa Del Rey and it was perfect.

The location and accommodation were ideal. The fruit, champagne etc was a lovely touch. Having lived in Upstate New York for a period 1986/87 it was lovely to buy a few familiar items to eat here. If we do ever make the long trip again, this would definitely be our first choice.

Thank you again.

PS We rode the bikes, it was our first time for about 7 yrs!!! Great.

PPS We're not really coffee drinkers so leaving that for the next people. But we DO like the bubbly!

Thanks again.

Stellar home and owners!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is GORGEOUS and blew away all of our expectations. From the beginning, Jamie and Noi were incredibly helpful and responsive to my husband and I. Upon arriving, we had to check the address twice - just to make sure we were at the right place. We thought there was no way we were lucky enough to be so close to the ocean...the ad is as true to the rental as it could ever be and if anything, didn't do it justice!

The kitchen was well stocked and every detail was thought of. It's apparent that they really care about the property and the people who stay there as guests. Little things like rolls of quarters (in exchange for bills) available for laundry and parking, a welcome guide to help orient you to the house and area, as well as a printer - filled with ink! - in the office area, really made a huge impact on us. We wanted for nothing and it was by far the most relaxing property we could have secured.

If you're thinking about renting this space...STOP! Stop thinking and just do it. You really won't regret it and if you don't do it, you'll be missing out hugely. We've already booked their larger rental space for next year and know we'll be coming back for many, many years to come!

What an awesome place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is Bob and Pam Johnson from Alaska. We stayed at your Westwind Street property in Marina Del Ray this past September and wanted to tell you just how thoroughly impressed we were with the accommodations. Everything was very clean and fresh. We felt so comfortable there, it felt just like being at home, only warmer. Thank you so much, and we will definitely be staying there again.

"Best-at-the-Beach" is THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5

We spent seventeen days in this beautiful condo and it felt like home. The location is perfect! Just steps to the beach. Meticulously maintained, the owners have thought of everything to make sure that their guests are well taken care of. They were in contact with us during our stay making sure that we were not experiencing any problems. The personal attention was appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend "Best-at-the-Beach" to family and friends and look forward to the possibility of staying there in the future while visiting family in the Los Angeles area.
